What connects all of our employees is the fact that they are living and working in a (not too) remote ski area. Hence, our ideal candidates must be willing to embrace the seasonal, live-in lifestyle, which includes the ability to get along well with others living in close quarters. Also, (while not a requirement) an interest in winter sports and activities, especially skiing and snowboarding, is a definite plus. Many of our employees come to Alta with the intent of learning to ski, and leave at the end of the year feeling like a seasoned pro!
In addition to their monthly salary and room and board, live-in employees receive a season pass to either the Alta or Snowbird ski areas, whichever they choose (about HALF of our seasonal employees last year were strictly snowboarders). A deposit is required for the pass, to ensure that employees complete their term of employment. Employees may also purchase an upgrade to a combined Alta-Snowbird pass (the two ski areas were connected by a new lift a few years ago).
Also, employees have access to two outdoor hot tubs, our outdoor heated swimming pool, our bar (a popular local's hangout for those over 21), and free WiFi service.
Most of our employees are “live-in” employees, meaning they are housed in our shared-room dorm facilities. Housing and meals are included as part of all live-in employee’s compensation, including all utilities.
